  • Really a phenomenal little aquarium. Reasonably priced with a wide selection of interactive exhibits. I happened to be with two biology PhD students who also commented how clean and healthy all the animals were. This is very child friendly with lots of things to touch and see. Also has a nice play structure to burn off that excess kiddo energy
  • Great place to go I take my son there every year sometimes several times a year. The staff have always been great and the tanks always look clean all creatures apear healthy and happy as can be, very well fed. I give this place an A+ for all the hard work they've done just to get their business up and going from all the difficulties that it takes and keeping it going with the high standards of taking care of all the little creatures the best they can. I'll be back again soon. 👍
  • Please don't encourage this type of business by giving it money. They take animals meant to live in the wild (some that once did) and put them in tiny cages and tanks so people can look at them, handle them and feed them for amusement. It's really sad. I've been there a couple of times and I swear the animals look depressed - capitulating to miserable subjugation by people who will do anything to make money. I'm sure there are very nice, well intentioned people working there (not the owners) and I hate to see them lose their jobs, but this place really needs to shut down and try to get as many of the animals as possible to some kind of rescue.
  • Took 4 children from the ages of 18 months to 6 years old with my girlfriend. We had an absolute blast! We took advantage of their "Twofer Tuesday" deal and ordered everything online. Very happy we did order our admission tickets and food tokens online, made checking in super easy! Even though I forgot to keep the online order separate from my girlfriend's purchase, the wonderful lady at the front desk knew exactly what we were trying to accomplish and assisted perfectly. These employees are very acclimated to children running around and were wonderful when my youngest took a shortcut through the desk area and let me run through to get her instead of all the way around. The rays were just like the reviews said about "puppy's coming right up to the glass to be petted." That was an awesome experience! The birds and going into the exhibit to feed them nectar was very fun! They were beautiful to look at since they are not so fond of being petted. The associate helping was informative and excellent with the handling of the birds. We will for sure come back! Thank you for all your hard work and wonderful experience!!!
  • Horrible experience, I will never go back. The place is tiny and extremely crowded. The gift shop seems to take up more space than the actual aquarium areas. We were in and out in under 15 minutes. The sharks they advertise was only one shark and it was about 18 inches long. The coolest animal on display was the octopus. Unfortunately there was an employee poking at it with a small net to get it to move. The sea otter and puffin displays were not open yet(They looked way too small). My recommendation is to just go to a pet store. Most decent sized pet stores have more animals on display, are less crowded and are free.
